Online Degree Offerings

Naval Station Great Lakes Media (02/25/2014)

Choosing a college or university is all about fit. Which institution provides a relevant educational experience and prepares you for tomorrow's careers? Which institution fits your busy schedule? Which institution offers online courses and degree-completion programs backed by experienced and respected faculty?

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside, just 30 minutes north of Naval Station Great Lakes, offers an online master's degree in sustainable management, and online bachelor's degree-completion programs in sustainable management, and health information management and technology. Degree-completion programs are designed for people who have completed at least two years of college with 60 transferable credits and are ready to take that next step and finish their college degree.

The demand for qualified professionals in these fields is at an all-time high. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers in sustainable management are expected to grow by nearly 20 percent, and careers in health information management and health information technology are projected to grow at a rate of close to 30 percent over the next eight years.

Anyone who has been to a physician's office or hospital in the past year is well aware of the major initiative to move patient medical records from the cumbersome paper-and-file system to a more accessible digital database.

While many programs focus training on either the technical computer skills or the medical information skills, the Parkside Health Information Management and Technology offers both. This unique and highly relevant program allows graduates to be well positioned for the increased demand in this vital aspect of the health-care system.

Both the bachelor's and master's degrees in sustainable management prepare you for success today and tomorrow. Sustainable management emphasizes achieving a successful "Triple Bottom Line" of profit, people, and planet. As the Earth's population grows, and the size of our planet seemingly becomes smaller, the need for all of us to be more aware of the environment and the impact we all have on it has become critical. Along with our roles as individuals, business and industries continue to develop new practices and ways of doing business that are more in harmony with the Earth's fragile ecosystem.
